This Memebox took the longest time to arrive… my previous boxes all came with upgraded expedited shipping as I bought them in value sets so this is my first box with normal shipping; I really didn’t expect it to take so long since Korea is a 6-hour flight away from Singapore. This was shipped out on July 29th and I received it a couple of days ago, so shipping took nearly 2 weeks?
Anyway, back to my Memebox. I ordered in mid July with a few other boxes, taking advantage of some blog discounts. Before discount, this box costs USD32, plus USD6.99 for shipping from Korea, and is a Superbox which meant that every item is supposed to be full size.
What is Memebox?
Memebox is a non-subscription mystery beauty box company. Each regular Memebox comes with 4 to 8 full-sized or deluxe sample of Korean products, while Superbox comes with only full sized products. Shipping dates are set by the company; check the product description for information about when the box is scheduled to start shipping.

Item 1: CNKcos Sexy Beans
Full size, 120g. Value of $17
Product Description: Lighten & tighten up your body line with this ultimate at-home self body-slimming item! A gentle, non-irritating formula entirely made from natural soy beans, corn, centella asiatica extracts, and caffeine. Whereas other slimming creams are recommended to be used once a week, Sexy Beans are gentle enough for daily use.
How To Use: Take one Sexy Bean and crush it onto the part of your body you specifically wish to slim. Do this while you’re taking a shower. Makes things so much easier. Gently massage the specific body part with the crushed Sexy Bean, lathering it nice and evenly. Wait 3~5 minutes before rinsing.
Quick thoughts: Now this looks interesting! While I don’t really believe that this can help me slim down, it looks fun and weird enough to try.
Item 2: Cotterang Blackhead & Black Mask Economic Kit
Full size, 80ml. Value of $29.
Product Description: This is a blackhead and pore multi-care kit, containing a bottle of Blackhead Out Sauce, 40 nose packs, 20 neck packs, 25 black cotton tips, a plastic dish and pincette.
How To Use: Place a black mask on the plastic dish and wet is abundantly with the Blackhead-Out Sauce. Then, place it on your nose or neck and rest for 15-20 minutes. Remove the mask before it dries completely. Remove extracted blackheads with black cotton tip.
Quick thoughts: I’ve tried a few similar masks before and they really worked pretty well for me in getting blackheads out so I’m glad to have them again!
Item 3: LABSTORY V Line B-Tox Lifting Mask Pink
Full size. Value of $34.
Product Description: Labstory’s V Line B-Tox Lifting Mask is entirely different from other facial masks; it doesn’t carry any mask essence or ampoule, and instead is made from silicon to wear over your chin. It will lift up fine lines and wrinkles around your chin and neck with continuous use.
How to use: Place the rounded part of the product over your chin first and wrap it around your head, fastening in the top and the back of your head. Recommended to apply the included cream sachets on chin before mask application.
Quick thoughts: What the heck?? This looks like a torture device! I guess I will give it a go just because I am so amused by it! What will they think of next?
Item 4: Oseque Silk Foot Peeling Gel
Full Size, 70g. Value of $42.
Product Description: Relax and take the time out to care for your tired feet with theis easy-to-use Silk Foot Peeling! The jelly-like texture and nutrition-rich formula of the peeling gel works to rid of calluses on your heels while nourishing the dried out skin at the same time. This contains Hibiscus flower, papaya and avocado oil.
How To Use: Using dry hands, apply peeling gel on your heels. Use a callus removing buffer to rub off any dead skin cells and rinse off with warm water. Apply a moisturizing cream afterwards.
Quick thoughts: I’ve been wanting to try one of those foot peeling masks for a long time but because I have a broken toe nail I’ve been too scared to try. Now that I have a gel it means I can just target it wherever I want it to, so it’s perfect! Can’t wait to try!
Item 5: with shyan Ruby Pusher & Eraser
Full size, 14cm/15ml. Value of $17.
Product Description: It’s widely acknowledged that you need to remove nail cuticles in order to maintain beautiful nails. However, it’s not cuticles but “loose skin” underneath the cuticles that we need to remove to keep our hands/nails clean and healthy. The Ruby Pusher is specifically created for this; the high quality ceramic body works to gently scrap off the loose, dead skin from your nails.
How To Use: First apply the Eraser over your cuticles, then rinse off with water after 30-60 seconds. Then, hold the Ruby Pusher like a pencil, push the softened cuticles upwards, and gently scrap off the dead, loose skin underneath.
Quick thoughts: Not usually an at-home manicure person – too much effort, so I’m not too excited about this product but now that I have it I will try it.
Item 6: RiRe Cool Dr Scalp+ & Hot Speed Manicure
Full Sized, 10ml + 15ml. Value of $11.
Product Description: Enriched with various oriental medicinal extracts, this works to cool down the scalp temperature for preventing possible hair loss and also to remove unnecessary impurities and dead skin cells from your scalp for both healthier scalp and hair. Then, there’s the Hot Speed Manicure which works to penetrate deep into the hair cuticles, deliver abundant nutrition and creates a strong protein layer for maintaining the healthy moisture balance of your hair.
How To Use: Cool Dr Scalp+ can be applied directly onto your scalp whenever and wherever needed; no need for shampooing. For the Hot Speed Manicure, take an adequate amount on your hands and apply it thoroughly onto hair ends. No rinsing afterwards needed.
Quick thoughts: This might piss some people off, but I really have a head full of unruly thick hair so I will be passing this on to a friend who is always hunting down hair loss products.
The value of this box came up to USD150 while I paid about USD32 + USD6.99 for it, so just on a value versus price basis I think it’s pretty good! Most of the items are interesting enough to try, and I’m really excited to try the sexy beans and the foot peel, while the hair items will given to a friend who really wants it so I would say nearly everything will get some good use. 🙂
